Trailer Thursday – Four Exciting New Films Coming Your Way!

Trailer Thursday – Four Exciting New Films Coming Your Way!

The pandemic is in remission, cinemas are open again! Here’s a sneak peek at what you could be watching soon!

Sometimes there are so many trailers released at one time that it best just to dedicate a simple page to all of them. So here are two brand-new trailers and some a couple of days older. Hey I’m catching up on the film news as well!

Jungle Cruise

Another film that has been based on a long-running classic Disney theme park ride. In this film, intrepid boat captain, Frank Wolff (Dwayne Johnson), and Dr. Lily Houghton (Emily Blunt) travel from London to the Amazon jungle in search of a mystical tree that could contain healing properties which would change medicine forever.

Jungle Cruise will open in the US and UK on the 30th of July in cinemas. It will also be available on Disney+ via Premier Access.


I remember when director M. Night Shyamalan first appeared on the scene with his brilliant film, The Sixth Sense. Since then his career seems to have had some ups and downs.

For example, Unbreakable was a brilliant superhero origin story told uniquely, but on the flip side we had The Village which I think would have worked better as an episode of a Twilight Zone style program.

Shyamalan’s latest feature is Old. When a family discovers a deserted beach, they think they have found the perfect secluded spot for their holiday. However, they soon discover that they are ageing incredibly rapidly and that they cannot find a way to leave the beach.

I’m hoping the trailer hasn’t given too much away as this one has really got my interest.

Old will open in the US and UK in cinemas on the 23rd July

Gunpowder Milkshake

Karen Gillan, best known for her roles as Nebula in Guardians of the Galaxy, Ruby from the recent blockbuster Jumanji films and as the 11th Doctor Who companion, stars in this violent film about a young girl, Sam, who was raised by a criminal gang after she was abandoned by her mother.

This film looks utterly brilliant with an amazing cast including Lena Headey, Angela Bassett, Michelle Yeoh, Carla Gugino and Paul Giamatti.

I recommend you watch a little of the trailer because as standard these days, it tends to give away far too much.

Gunpowder Milkshake is coming to Netflix on July 14th.

Last Night In Soho

Edgar Wright is a favourite director of mine. I mean come on, read the list, Spaced, Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, The Word’s End, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World and Baby Driver. Also for a short while, we almost got his version of Ant-Man!

Once again, Last Night In Soho was a film we should have seen last year, but the nasty virus made sure that was curtailed.

I’ll let the synopsis fill you in, “A psychological thriller about a young girl, passionate in fashion design, who is mysteriously able to enter the 1960s where she encounters her idol, a dazzling wannabe singer. But 1960s London is not what it appears, and time seems to fall apart with shady consequences…”

Last Night In Soho will open in the US on the 22nd of October with the UK following a week later.
